About Lise Peacock, 91-6432 Kapolei Pkwy, Ewa Beach, HI
I am Lise Peacock, and was born and raised on Oahu. My father was raised on Oahu as well and ran a roofing business so we are long time Hawaii residents. My husband, David DeCoite, was born in Guam but was also raised on Oahu. His family ancestors on his father's side have resided on Maui since 1883. We have family and friends on the Big Island, Maui, Molokai and Oahu. Our dream was to own a home in Kamuela and eventually retire there. We have had our Kamuela home rented since purchasing it and are now hoping to share it with visitors to Waimea and also be able to enjoy the home ourselves for part of the year. I am happy to share any information about Hawaii and make your stay an enjoyable one.

Why Lise Peacock, 91-6432 Kapolei Pkwy, Ewa Beach, HI chose Waimea
My paternal Grandmother, Grandma E, lived on the slopes of Haleakala and rode horses since she was young and I learned to ride at a young age in Maui and have enjoyed owning horses throughout my life. My Uncle John lived on the Big Island and worked on several ranches. Many of my husband's family are ranchers in Makawao, Maui. As horse lovers, we have always dreamed of owning a home on the outer island in horse country. In 2003, we were fortunate to sell a piece of land we owned on the Big Island and were able to purchase a second home in Kamuela. Each time I come to the Big Island and drive up to Waimea I can feel the stress melt away as soon as I drive into the green rolling hills of Parker Ranch with it's awe inspiring views of Mauna Kea. This property is ideally located close to the small town of Kamuela, rich in Hawaii ranching history. Parker Ranch, once the largest privately owned Ranch in the United States still operates as a working cattle ranch. Kamuela is surrounded by pasture land, horses and cattle but still has many amenities in the area such as grocery stores, a wonderful theater with world class entertainment for part of the year, several fine dinning as well as mom and pop restaurants, and farmers markets in the area. Fantastic white sand beaches are only a 25 minute drive away. Mauna Kea, which rises 14,000 feet from sea level, is a unique place to visit the summit and observatory (4-wheel drive necessary). Hawaii Volcano's National Park is also a high on the list of places to see. Although it is a 2 hour drive from our home it is a must see opportunity. We are also a 30 minute drive away from the small town or Honokaa and the serene, beautiful Waipio Valley. You will need a 4-wheel drive to visit the base of the valley with its beautiful black sand beach, inland farms, horses, streams and waterfall. There are several horse back riding opportunities near-by in Kamuela and Waipio valley. There are many rodeos held on the island.
What makes this House unique
Our rates are flexible - just message me with rate requests. Once you see the sweeping views of Mauna Kea from our A-frame home, you will want to sit on the porch and enjoy a cool island drink and relax. Our home is in a family-friendly neighborhood and within 5 minutes drive to quaint Kamuela Town for near-by restaurants, bars, grocery stores, shops, and Starbucks! You may not want to leave once you get here. Our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was completely renovated in January 2019 and everything is new.

Our family really enjoyed this home. It was very comfy and the location was perfect.

Stay at Lio Ka Hale
Beautiful, clean and comfortable house. Great view of Mauna Kea.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Aloha and we hope you make it back to the Big Island again!
Fantastic stay @ Lio Ka Hale
Let me start out by saying, this was the most enjoyable home to rent from all the VRBO facilities we have rented over the last 9 years. The owner is a very nice person, and wants to make sure that your stay is the best possible!
It is a bit cooler in this area of Waimea ( and wetter), but all you have to do is drive a few miles to the West and the sun comes back out and the temp goes back up.
Everything you could need for a great vacation is provided including good selection of cooking utensils, a gas grill, and an ice-maker. The beds are very comfortable and the sound of rain on the roof at night helps lull you to sleep. The neighborhood is quiet and please respect the quiet hours that the owner has outlined in her arrival notes to keep it that way.
The check-in process is easy, but if you would have problems, the owner is a text away from helping you.
Thank-you Lise for allowing us to live in your wonderful home for the (unfortunately) short period of time. We will definitely have your home as our first choice when we return!
Aloha and Mahalo!
Ron and Lori K.
PS. The welcome bag of goodies you provided were greatly appreciated!

We arrived to find a lovely well- appointed home which is generously stocked by the owner. It is easy to get to so many places from the site and suggestions were spot on. Our appreciation to the owner!
Beautiful Waimea home.
This is our second stay in this beautiful home and it did not disappoint. We love everything about it. The communication with the owner is excellent and the house is immaculate. I have nothing bad to say.. we will be back again and again to this wonderful home.
Thank you Tamara. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our home. Your kind comments mean a lot to us! Aloha, Lise
